They had nothing to offer each other
But themselves.
Neither of them much of a scholar,
Both full of love, however, and dreams
That would last a lifetime.

They loved to dance,
Loved to sing,
Loved to drink one too many,
Then dance complicated dances
Without falling over.

Everyone said it couldn’t last.
Years later, it turned out
They were a perfect match,
Still smiling at each other
First thing in the morning.
